Roller Coaster Ride

I'm sure all of you ladies have been here before. It comes with the territory of being a woman. It's "that time of the month" for me (sorry if this is tmi...), which is not helping my already crazy emotions. I'm sad that I'm leaving, but I'm happy that I'm going to Hawaii. I'm ticked off because my hubby still needs to call the car loan company to get the rest of the paperwork together; I'm happy because he finally called about temporary lodging.

This has been a complete whirlwind and I think my head is still spinning from all of it. Actually, I have a headache right now too. I feel like I don't know which way is up, and we've still got several things to do...and we're leaving for Charleston tomorrow. Do we have all the paperwork we need to ship the car? No. Can I call to get it straightened out? No, because my name isn't on the account. This is all being left up to my very forgetful hubby who is currently helping his grandfather set up a new HD tv. 

See? I told you - emotional roller coaster. Sometimes, being a woman is not cool.  Did I mention that I totally had a breakdown after I took Jasper to Anna's for the day? I walked him up there to hang out with her dogs for the day and while I was walking back, I got extremely worked up. I'm going to see him tonight, and I know he's ok but I still bawled my eyes out. *sigh* My poor hubby has to deal with my craziness. I'm also probably a little too upset about some family drama...I really want to vent blog about it, but I'm afraid someone would read it and get mad. That would probably just make matters worse and I don't think my emotions could handle that right now.

Maybe once I get on that plane, all of this craziness will be settled and all I'll have to worry about is getting sick on the plane. Yes, I get airsick. I also get carsick. I also get motion sick while watching movies that were hand-filmed, i.e. Cloverfield. Needless to say, I'll be taking Dramamine and snoozing through most of our flight to Hawaii. Ah, drugs....how I need them.

For now, I'm going to try and breathe. I feel like I've got so much going on that I don't have time to just relax! Maybe I'll just relax in Hawaii... =)

I'm sorry! I know it's crazy and frustrating and out-of-control. And I totally understand about needing to vent somewhere but not being able to blog. If you want, you can just send me a vent email, and I promise no judging! :) Take care of yourself. I know it's a lot of pressure and stress, but take time to take a nap and have some ice cream and let it go for a few minutes, at least. You will get there and it will work out, one way or the other.

About the motion sickness, I'm right there with you! 2 Dramamine and some starch (like french fries) usually does the trick for me. No dairy, though! ;)

I swear military life is just one big roller coaster ride (hence the name of my blog!). Just remember that everything will get done and once you get to the other side, you can breath a big sigh of relief. Hang in there!

I know how you feel - hang in there girl!

UGH, sometimes being a girl SUCKS. We worry about everything and then worry that we are worrying too much! It's a horrible circle. Breathe and feel better!

I think I'm going to copy and paste this onto my blog today! We just finished packing all the furniture we're selling to my BIL which we're driving to Ohio today where we'll spend the weekend with family. After getting up at 3am the past 3 days to deal with Best Sapper stuff, I feel like crapola today and getting my monthly vistor was the LAST thing I wanted to deal with. I'm pretty sure my husband is venting to his buddies on the way to class today about how psycho/crabby/whinny I've been all day!

Know you're not alone. I'm riding that emotional roller coaster in the seat right next to you! Lets put our hands in the air and enjoy the ride together!

Hang in there. Moving is tough and move like that had got to be hard. My good friend Miranda is in the process of moving to Hawaii as well, you should talk to her sometime. She has a blog, tuccitimesthree

Just get through the next few days and then relax when you're in beautiful, gorgeous, perfect Hawaii. Also, I'm a crazy yatch once a month too. It comes with the woman territory.
